« Part 7: Arm shaping Part 8 of Wormy soft maple rocker ( Hal Taylor version ) series Part 9: Lot's of sanding, Glueing the headrest and mounting rockers / shaping rockers »

So i’ve now cut the tops and bottoms of the back supports, rounded ends to fit, sanded smooth all that needed to be, this part is pretty straight forward follow the instructions!

I’m really happy how my back supports turned out

BTW in these pics the finish is still just off the band saw, I love that thing!

I’ve also got the stacks glued up on the rockers, soon i’ll be shaping and attaching!!

Almost there

sras considering how much time your lazy Susan must have taken, i’d say you could give a chair a go with out much hesitation.

If you do plan on doing so, I would contact Hal about getting his templates / book and even video it’s been a huge help.

Nice chair and progressing nicely. I really liked those back slats. Are they just cut out of thick pieces with no bending?

I started this blog after I built the back slats so no build pics this time.

They are bent 4 pieces think about 1/8’’ each, I used soft maple, ash,ash, and walnut on the back. I tried my best to make the fronts matched and backs matched I was 100% on the front by mixed up a few on the back but still looks great.

The rockers are built the same way just more pieces and different mold

I’m glad yall are enjoying the show, i’m having a blast building it I should be done this week, and on to #2 next week this time Walnut.
